." that's because he found out that his policy, which came into effect just two months after the law's arbitrary cutoff date for grandfathered plans, will be discontinued next year. and he's not happy about this at all. especially given the fact that a plan on the obamacare exchanges will dramatically drive up his insurance costs from $400 a month to more than $700 a month with zero subsidies available. here's what he had to say. he said my wife and i are 54. we don't need maternity care, and we don't need obamacare. well, he's right to be upset. this is simply not in keeping with the spirit of the president's oft-repeated promise. perhaps the administration would like to tell him he should have just done a better job of keeping up with its regulatory dictates. but what about the millions who purchased their plans relying on the president's promise that they could keep them? what about the husbands and wives across kentucky who suffered when two of our largest employers had to drop spousal coverage? what about the folks who lost coverage at work? what about all the smaller paychecks
. it attacks cost drivers like medical liability law that are making health care unaffordable. it restores pricing flexibility to plans so a healthy young person can again purchase catastrophic insurance for next to nothing. it takes the best of the american health care system, preserves it, and corrects its flaws. i realize the senate's likely to bury this reform as it has so many, but it's important that the house pass it so that the american people can see that there is still hope to save what was once the finest health care system in the world and can be again as soon as this favored dream of obamacare finally breaks. we have just been through a government shutdown because democrats refused even to consider delaying the obamacare train wreck. they got their way, and that train wreck is now upon us. i believe in the coming months the american people will recognize the urgent warnings that the republicans tried so desperately to convey. and they'll be looking for a way out. we need to blaze that trail now. for that reason i rise to ask the house leadership to bring the republican health
law attorney seth. dr. scott, i start with you, this is an amazing story that president promises we can keep our health insurance coverage knowing that likelihood is 47% to 60% would close their coverage each year, millions of americans without coverage, he promised us the opposite. what do you make of this? >> this is an irs bulle but -- - >> bottom line is that i think they were anticipating the people would lose their coverage, and move into the exchanges. these are most lo lucrative, i suspect they would move on to plans they would like more, we're finding right now options are worse than they should in costs and benefit design. >> we've seen people say, they see increased costs but administration reporting that young people, individuals will see costs on their policies of just $50 a month, i have to tell you, i have not seen that in talking with anybody on our show. what do you think of the back and forth, a give and take between the white house and media on the topics? >> i think that it demonstrates that administration is not only not in control of what is going on, but they

of that law were found unconstitutional. one third of clinics were set to close their doors when the law would have gone into effect. one provision required doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges of a hospital within 30 miles of that abortion facility. federal district judge wrote the admitting privileges provision of house bill 2 does not bear a rational relationship to the legitimate right of the state in preserving and promoting fetal life or a woman's health and in any event places a substantial obstacle in the path of a woman seeking an abortion of a non-viable fetus and is thus an undue burden to her. the judge struck down some of the law's restriks on the use of pills used to induce apportion. wendy davis issued this warning during her filibuster of the bill. >> i'd say if you vote for this bill you're simply happy to ignore medical science and watch women and children die for no reason. >> texas families are stronger and healthier when women across the state have access to quality health care. i would rather see our tax dollars spent on improving our kids' schools ra

insurers to continue offering deficient plans next year is such a bad policy. the law says that all plans, except those that were grandfathered in 2010, must be the new consumer protection standards. if we don't enforce this policy, insurance companies can continue offering flimsy coverage that disappears when people actually need it. no one should want that. it is understandable that there will be a focus today on what is not working. we must also remember what is working. the health insurance plans that are being offered in the exchanges are good plans. their premiums are much lower than expected. 60% of the uninsured individuals shopping in the new marketplaces to be able to get coverage for less than $100 per month. half of the young adults will be able to get coverage for less than $50 per month. since congress adopted the affordable care act, health care costs across the whole economy have fallen to their lowest level in decades. the success of the affordable care act is due to the efforts of many people. one individual more than any other is responsible for all of the good that has

the president made when he sold his health care law. promises such as if you like your health care plan you can keep it and that premiums would drop by $2,500. those promises, mr. speaker, are now on the ash heap of history. here's what i'm hearing from my district. a woman from allegeny county recently showed me the letter she got from her insurance letter. the letter begins -- this is to inform you that we'll discontinue your health care plan on december 31, 2013. mr. rothfus: a father tells me that his family's coverage will be terminated next year. another woman in the north hills tells me she gets insurance through her employer, a small business, but her share of the premiums are frippling. when a product comes with a promise that is broken, you take it back and look for a new product. the empowering patients first health and the american health care reform act are examples of new health care reform products we can look at. they are solutions that empower consumers and not washington elites and they are a good place to start. i thank the speaker and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: f

since the industrial workplace of the postdepression era. yet the labor laws written during this time period are still in place today and the makeup of our workforce has also changed dramatically. today 60% of working households have two working parents. 66% of single moms and 79% of single dads work as well. american workers have had to adapt to keep pace with this changing environment. so should our laws. instead of sticking with an antiquated labor law, i believe we need to update the fair labor standards act to actually meet the changing needs of workers. that's why i'm introducing the family friendly and workplace flexibility act. this bill will allow flexible workplace arrangements such as compensatory time and flexible credit-hour agreements which are currently available to employees working for the federal government. federal employees already have this. allow that to be extended to businesses regulated by the fair labor standards act. currently the flsa prohibits employers from offering compensatory time or comptime to their hourly employees. this bill would amend the flsa to

in a political sound bite, is for the vast majority of americans, this law leaves you alone. that's what critics of this law miss when they talk about a socialized takeover of our system. if you have employer insurance today or you get your insurance from the government today, you're left alone by this law. the law really only affects the minority of people who don't have insurance or who buy on their own. among those who buy on their own, some will be forced to buy more generous plan than they have today. that's because the plans they have today aren't real insurance and we're going to move them into real insurance. technically, yes, the president did not focus on the 2% to 3% of americans who will have to buy up their insurance plans because of this law. i think in the ledger of political overstatements, it's a pretty small one. >> yeah, it amounts to about 9 million people, i believe, by having read a speech you gave. >> i would say it's more like 6 to 9 million people, depending how you define it. >> okay.
